Green is cool for back to school! So to make sure your tot is ready for the first day, we’ve teamed up with Instinctive and Stubby Pencil Studio to outfit one lucky Tot in eco-friendly style. The backpack is probably the most important piece of gear your kid needs. Instinctive‘s new recycled Trunk Pack gets our approval — we love the cute panda graphics on the eco pack and it’s just the right size for little kids. The bag is made from 100% recycled polyester and even the webbing and plastic buckles are made from 100% recycled materials. But what good is a backpack without anything to put inside? You’ll also win a $100 shopping spree from Stubby Pencil Studio, so you can fill the bag with eco-friendly school supplies. Stubby Pencil Studio is stocked with all kinds of green stationary products for kids including colored pencils made from FSC certified wood, PVC-free lunch bags, recycled cardboard pencil sharpeners, soy crayons, recycled newspaper pencils, banana paper notebooks and more. Enter to win after the jump!
